Jr. Gary Clark When My Train Pulls In

Everyday nothing seems to change

Everywhere I go I keep seeing the same old things and I

I can’t take it no more

Oh, I would leave this town

But I ain’t got no where else to go

Wake up in the morning to more, more bad news and I

Sometimes I feel like I was born to lose and I

It’s driving me out of my mind

Gonna catch the next train and I

And move on down the line

Whoah I’ll be ready now

I’ll be ready when my train pulls in

Whoah I’ll be ready now

I’ll be ready when my train pulls in

I know my time ain’t long around here and I

I can’t live this life again

Walking down the street you might wanna cross a smiling face

But they’ll stab you in the back as soon as you turn and walk away and I

Oh Lord, it’s bringing me down

If things don’t change around here

Ain’t no use in my hanging ’round

Whoah I’ll be ready now

I’ll be ready when my train pulls in

Whoah I’ll be ready now

I’ll be ready when my train pulls in

I know my time ain’t long around here and I

I can’t live this life again

Jr. Gary Clark Travis County

Travis County took my picture

But no, I didn’t smile

They told me I was gonna be here

For a pretty long while

One day I was walking down the street when

I should’ve been walking down the hall

Heard a voice calling out, saying

“Ooh, where you going, y’all?”

Now before I could’ve gathered my thoughts

I turned around and I saw the cops

I pointed arms up right when

He told me I better stop

Oooh, oooh

They put my hands in cuffs

Oh boy, they even locked me up

When I thought that it was all a bluff

Till they started taking my stuff

Now I’m sittin’ ’round in my cell

Just a looking at the wall

I didn’t even get to make

My one phone call

After I was just sittin’ ’round

You know I started getting down

When they let me out

All I could do is scream and shout

Jr. Gary Clark Stay

It’s been crazy baby ​lately I’ve been actin’ a fool.

​Don’t take it personal

​I got to do what I do

​Yeah

​But every time I see you

​It feels like the first time

​And every time I leave you

​I lose my mind

​Yeah

​That’s why I need you to stay with me

​Go all the way with me

​I need you to stay with me

​Don’t just blow it all away with me

​Yeah

​that liked to play by the rules

​Maybe you’d understand

​if you could walk in my shoes

​Cause every time I see you

It feels like the first time

And every time I leave you

I lose my mind

Yeah

Go all the way with me

I need you to stay with me
